Ethel Oliver

I discovered a beautiful antique photo of an actress from the early 1900s on Flickr this morning and knew I just had to draw her.  With kind permission from the owner of the photo I set about drawing her in graphite pencil, this is the result.  I'm really pleased with it.  This is the first time actually that I have drawn a portrait in graphite, I've used charcoal a few times and I think now I prefer graphite.
